Traverse City Area Events

March is here and the Groundhog says spring is almost here!  But it just may be the temperatures that convince the Groundhog to change his mind about when spring gets here.  The snow is piled high (thigh high to be exact)!  The ski slopes are full and excited about all the constant snow! (You can find the slopes here: and see their status here: Meanwhile, my husband is leaving the TV on spring training, but there are some really cool things to do this month. Check out this Event Highlights for March to see some of the fun things you can do during the winter in Northwest Michigan.  

These events are the highlights from the Ticker, EventBright, PureMichigan, and Meetup.  There is no rhyme or reason to them and it is worth a full peruse.  

If you are planning a venture and like the option of an investment or vacation home, give me a call, and we can begin this discussion.

In 42ft – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels, the company dares us to leap into the circus ring to experience the endurance of this evolving art form.
